Is iced tea really tea?

I see we have reached the existential-crisis-inducing questions now. I am on Team IcedTeaIsTea.

Thread bump with a new prompt for discussion!

What is your favourite brand for teas? Some people have already mentioned a few but just thought I'd throw it out as a general question  :D

I'm pretty basic and usually just go with Twinnings but I do like different brands for certain teas (Rosamonte for yerba mate because my boyfriend's mum buys it for me and those golden tube ones that you see in every Asian household for lotus tea)  ;D

Hey Angelina!

I like Herbal and Fruit Blended Teas, I don't know the brand, but there is a shop at my local shopping centre that sells them.

I also like Twinings too! :D Specifically the Cranberry and Pomegranate tea, not only does it smell amazing, but it also tastes good too.

Keen to see what others say!🍵 ;D

Big fan of T2 and Twinnings!

Also don't mind the herbal Pukka ones either 😊

Bump!

I've recently gotten into a Peach and Pineapple tea by Red Seal. This tea is sweet and gives you the option to brew it hot or cold (I usually drink it cold). :)

Bought a teapot (with a loose leaf strainer in it) the other week. Best purchase from KMart that I've made 😂

drinking tea out of a teapot is an instant way to make yourself feel more sophisticated!

Also means you can just keep refilling for yourself instead of having to go and make yourself another cup  8) I realised this halfway through my first year of university and I think it's the best example of me being peak lazy.

Oh it's definitely a mix of this and the sophistication 😂❤

I can't stop drinking Irish Breakfast, but also want to branch out to some similar teas - maybe sweeter? I don't like putting sugar in my teas though so if there's some naturally sweet black teas I'd love to hear of them.

Any tea suggestions?

Hehe one of us 8)
When I'm not drinking Irish Breakfast (Twinings) I usually drink Australian Afternoon or the Extra Strong English Breakfast. Would also love to hear some similar teas or even some Irish Breakfast made by different companies!

Ditto the Aussie Afternoon (I'm out of Irish atm <\3)

However I really enjoyed Gewürzhaus' Gingerbread Tea and I was surprised to see I could get it outside of Christmas time! ;D (the lady who served me at Queen Vic Market even gave me a warm tea sample at the time too!)

(I have never been so excited for tea as this afternoon. I need help lol)

Ooh now I want to try it!

For some reason, I've been drinking heaps of English Breakfast tea (with milk). Not my usual sort of thing, but still very good.
